Let's take a closer look at John and Cameron's style in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
The teenagers lead a double life, one as normal teenagers going to high school and posing as brother and sister, and the other as the future leader of the Human Resistance and his Terminator protector fighting Skynet. Their clothes and gear illustrates this by being both trendy and feminine (in Cameron's case) and also functional.
During the day, both John and Cameron focus on blending in, therefore they dress like the average teenager boy/girl would. Layering is a big part of their wardrobe. They usually wear a long sleeve shirt, with a short sleeved top over it. You'll notice they wear matching outfits, but while John wears dark tones (olive green and black) and loose clothing, Cameron wears pink or purple tones and fitted skinny jeans, skirts and dresses that are comfortable, but fashionable. She even has been seen in calf boots that have hints of pink and purple in them or wearing a rainbow belt.
When John and Cameron go on a mission to prevent Judgment Day from happening and have to go from teenager to Skynet fighters, John's outfit is pretty much the same (except he accesorize them with shotguns and nine millimeters), while Cameron outfit makes a drastic change. She goes for a more military style ensemble, wearing cargo pants, tank tops, and fitted jackets. Not to mention she exchanges her arm-warmers (inspired from the universe of ballet) for leather gloves.

Valley Morning Star, a daily newspaper from the Rio Grande Valley, Texas, published on its November 10, 2012 edition an article titled "'Firefly' marks milestone in Science TV special" dedicated to the Firefly 10th Anniversary reunion that took place at San Diego Comic Con 2012.

Here's a transcript of the article.
'Firefly' marks milestone in Science TV special
The "Firefly" saga consists of 14 TV episodes, one big-screen movie and the undiminished passion of the space Western's fans, stars and producers.
To mark the 10th anniversary of the Fox show's abbreviated 2002-03 run, the Science Channel is airing the hourlong "Firefly 10th Anniversary: Browncoats Unite" at 10 p.m. EST Sunday.
The special will be preceded by a marathon showing of all the "Firefly" episodes starting at 7 a.m. EST.
For "Firefly" devotees, only one word can describe the prospect of seeing star Nathan Fillion, other cast members and creator Joss Whedon talk about making and missing their baby: "shiny," which is "Firefly"-speak for cool or good.
Fillion, who came down to Earth successfully in ABC's detective series "Castle," is happy to wallow in nostalgia and fan fervor. This summer, he took part in a packed San Diego Comic-Con tribute to "Firefly."
"The sheer volume of people is just the first part of it," Fillion said recently of the event. "Then you have to get down to how excited these people are. It's incredible energy. It's a very visceral feeling."
"The way I see it is there are people who love 'Firefly' as much as I do. 'Firefly' has a very special meaning to me, so I share in that excitement. It's easy for me to understand it," the 41-year-old actor said.
The series, a 26th-century adventure leavened with droll humor, followed the misfit crew of the Firefly-class spaceship Serenity. (The 2005 movie that rose, improbably, from the ashes of the low-rated "Firefly" was titled "Serenity." Comic books are among the other spinoffs.)
The ship's captain, Fillion's dashing but discontented Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds, fought with the losing, good-guy Browncoats in a civil war and now lives and works on the fringes of a repressive society.
The photo that illustrates the article was taken during the round-table conversation with cast & crew members that preceded the Firefly panel at Comic Con 2012. Here's a high resolution version.

“When I first came to L.A., I had an idea of what I wanted to do.” Initially, Glau “really wanted to be a period film actress.” Her favorite leading lady? “Rita Hayworth.”
A Sci-Fi Career
Glau’s career took quite an unexpected direction, however. “Science fiction creates amazing roles for women. Growing up, my mother read me a lot of science fiction — Lord of the Rings, Madeleine L’Engle books — and I feel like they shaped my imagination, which really helped me as an actress. You have to be able to escape into that world. “
Her New Role
Glau’s latest project is NBC’s new superhero drama, The Cape, in which she’ll play secretive investigator Orwell. “I gravitate toward roles that empower women in the story. I love that [Orwell is] empowered,” Glau says. “She’s hard to define. Even for me as the actress, there are still so many unanswered questions. I’ve played a lot of powerful girl characters, but I feel like Orwell is on the brink of becoming a woman."
On Getting Older
Becoming a woman is one thing, but aging itself isn’t exactly celebrated by most Hollywood actresses. “I’m not apologizing for my age,” Glau says. “I really try to appreciate [my age]. Sometimes my heart beats a little faster when I think of all the things I still want to do. [But] something that’s nice about growing up is people will listen to you more.”
Her Changing Style
With age, of course, comes wisdom. “I think it’s probably true for most girls: As you get older, you start to know who you are and you get more confident about what works for you and what doesn’t,” Glau says. “I feel more comfortable communicating what’s right for me. I feel more confident about knowing myself.”
Balancing Work & Life
When it comes to balancing a hectic schedule, “the first essential is definitely getting enough water,” Glau says. “Sleep is the second thing. I’ve gotten more and more protective of my sleep as I get older. I just make myself get it in.”
Essential Beauty Product
Glau puts the focus on skin care by using Epicuren products. “They use it for me on [the set of The Cape] as well. That whole line keeps my skin hydrated and fresh.”
Her 2011 Goals
As for New Year’s resolutions, Glau has a couple: “I am going to read more books instead of just scripts. My second is to take my vitamins.”
(Glo publisher BermanBraun also produces the NBC series The Cape.)
